Dani Howard appointed 2022/23 composer in residence at London Chamber Orchestra

The London Chamber Orchestra has appointed Dani Howard as composer-in-residence for the 2022/23 season

The London Chamber Orchestra has appointed Dani Howard as composer-in-residence for the 2022/23 season (a role held by Freya Waley-Cohen for 2021/22). To celebrate the appointment, Howard will be writing a saxophone concerto for Jess Gillam to be premiered during the 2022/23. Howard will also be writing other pieces, working with the emerging composers on the LCO New scheme and with the young people taking part in the LCO Music Junction project.

LCO celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2021, and celebrations continue with concerts, new recordings on Three Worlds Records, and a new book on LCO’s history written by Jessica Duchen. I chatted to Dani Howard back in 2019 between the premiere of her first opera, Robin Hood and her new work to open the 2019 Cheltenham Music Festival [see my interview]

Full details from the LCO website.
